SWEDEN: Mayor of Malmo says, “Sweden needs lots of immigrants, because otherwise we can’t keep up our welfare system"
IDIOT! It’s because of all the Muslim immigrants that you need such a large welfare system in the first place.
FOX NEWS One-third of Malmo’s population is foreign-born. Another 10 percent are of a different nationality. The biggest influx these days is from the Muslim world. Many of them are very extreme.
Riots have periodically broken out in the largely Muslim neighborhood of Malmo, called Rosengard, sparked by the false perception of mistreatment of residents by the police or other authorities. Firefighters at the scenes of some of these riots have been attacked. As a result, they refuse to answer calls to put out fires in Muslim areas without police escort.
Sweden has probably the most generous immigration, asylum and welfare policies in the world. Some natives have had it with this bottomless funding pit. For the first time last year, voters elected the far right anti-immigration Sweden Democrats—giving them a handful of seats in Parliament.
MP Kent Ekeroth disputes the argument that immigration keeps Sweden’s welfare system afloat. “What kind of immigrants do we take in? It’s illiterate, uncivilized Muslims from Somalia who have done nothing but herd sheep their whole life and we expect them to benefit our society? It’s ridiculous.” “There’s unofficial Shariah police going around Rosengard, checking how women dress, and there are unofficial Shariah courts in Malmo, being used.”
